Wiki time?[change source]

rolls eyes. --Hayley talk 15:29, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Sarcasm is my anti-drug. ;) --Isis(talk) 15:34, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

:D[change source]

:D. --Gwib -(talk)- 20:18, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

^_^ --Isis(talk) 20:19, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
For good? --Gwib -(talk)- 20:20, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps. --Isis(talk) 20:25, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Finally. >:C --Gwib -(talk)- 20:26, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, you know what they say...*tries to think of common phrase to fit situation* --Isis(talk) 20:32, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

You better stay this time, Isis, or I'll vandalise your userpage. --Gwib -(talk)- 20:34, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

O_o Had I felt a compulsive need to look through my userpage history, I might have noticed that. Quite pleasant. :) --Isis(talk) 20:39, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Active again[change source]

Hey there, does it just look like it or are you again a little more active than in the past few months? --Eptalon (talk) 22:15, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Looks can be deceiving, but hopefully I'll be around a bit more. :) --Isis(talk) 22:19, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Nice to see you active again, even if I never met you before until after I became an administrator here. :) – RyanCross (talk) 01:13, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. Nice to meet you. :) --Isis(talk) 01:14, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Setppenwolf[change source]

On regards to the edit I disagree; but I have added more info (and left in the movie) so it does not sound like that is the only song they ever did and that easy rider is there claim to fame. The band was has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, with 8 gold albums and three top-10 hits, they were already famous without that movie.--CPacker (talk) 20:32, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Terry Ananny[change source]

I was thinking about sysop protecting, but refrained from it. I wholeheartedly support the protection. Ananny is seriously annoying. I had to semi the deletion discussion because she kept attacking it. alexandra (talk) 04:25, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

I thought it was kind of needed. There's really no need for the article to be edited. No one should be creating it. Thus...protection. --Isis(talk) 16:00, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

sig[change source]

You should remove the Wikipedia:Esperanza link from your sig, its a red link. Ric is ShockingHawk 13:04, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

I know, but I like the spade...and I'm much too lazy to think of another link to use it for. --Isis(talk) 13:05, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
your contributions? Ric is ShockingHawk 13:06, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
I thought that would be egotistical. --Isis(talk) 13:06, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Not really. I'd do it but I don't have any space. Ric is ShockingHawk 13:07, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Eh, I'll change it sometime. It just doesn't seem that important. --Isis(talk) 13:09, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
I can fix it if you want. Ric is ShockingHawk 13:10, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the offer. :) But I think I can handle it...it's something I've been meaning to do. You just now reminded me. --Isis(talk) 13:12, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Or you can link it to WP:ADMIN you know, being an admin. Ric is ShockingHawk 13:13, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
True. That's actually a really good idea. --Isis(talk) 13:15, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
It is? I don't really think up good ideas that much. Ric is ShockingHawk 13:16, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
I think it's a good idea. I changed it. :) --Isis(talk) 13:17, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Ok then. See you around the wiki! :) Ric is ShockingHawk 13:24, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Isis♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠? Ric is ShockingHawk 01:17, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Spades. :D But they're all pink...:P --Isis(talk) 01:19, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
How's this:Isis♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠♠? Ric is ShockingHawk 01:20, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Muy bien! :D --Isis(talk) 01:23, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm a sig designer. (sorta ot me blocked on en.wiki) Ric is ShockingHawk 01:25, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Blocked? So does that make you a fugitive? --Isis(talk) 01:28, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
NO! that was on en.wiki, I've changed here. I'm NOT a fugitive. Ric is ShockingHawk
That's good. :) I've never even really tried to be too active on en.wiki. Too much melodrama over there. --Isis(talk) 01:32, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. This is my new home wiki. Ric is ShockingHawk 01:33, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Simple is pretty much amazing. --Isis(talk) 01:42, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Yep! Ric is ShockingHawk 14:03, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Please use my sig? Ric is ShockingHawk 14:23, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Tis time-consuming to add the links...--Isis(talk) 18:41, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Mosque?[change source]

Do you have time or interest to proofread/copyedit mosque? --Eptalon (talk) 22:45, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

I could start now, but I wouldn't be able to finish. I'll be happy to do it sometime tomorrow, when I'm able. --Isis(talk) 23:12, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Cat fix[change source]

Can you perhaps also look at Ephedrine? --Eptalon (talk) 23:24, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

I can try, but I don't really know anything about it...I think general edit-ness shouldn't be a problem, though. --Isis(talk) 00:28, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

World History[change source]

If you've got time please look at the article. I would like some comment before I try further revision. No hurry at all as I am busy with other stuff for some time. --Cethegus (talk) 20:15, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

The thing about World History is...you did such a fantastic job on it. I feel like a fifth wheel now. The article is way better than I could ever do...and I think it's much too intimidating for me. I'm not an expert (not at all), and I don't know anything about a lot of the new stuff added to it. The detail in the article has expanded beyond my knowledge capacities. In other words, I'm not smart enough for it.
However, I will try to look over it as soon as I get the chance. I'm sure there's something I can do for it. --Isis(talk) 01:03, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

QD[change source]

Should we delete The Jungle Book 2 under WP:QD#A3? Or are you willing to simplify with sarcastic edit summaries. --Gwib -(talk)- 15:53, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Ooh, I can do with sarcasm. ;) --Isis(talk) 15:56, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Great, you're so useful around here. We just couldn't do without you. Am I being sarcastic or not :O. --Gwib -(talk)- 16:01, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I definitely hope you're being sarcastic. Like, completely for serious. --Isis(talk) 16:03, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

President talk[change source]

Yes Barack will face not only McCain, BUT in reality its only John McCaín and Barack Obama who stands a true chance of reaching the white house.And that is what i wrote.--Sinbad (talk) 17:07, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Even if they are the only ones who have a chance of winning (which, sadly, they are), it's still important to at least be a little bit fair, right? --Isis(talk) 17:12, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
yes. I have made a new change. Lets see.--Sinbad (talk) 17:17, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Bob Barr?[change source]

We're a two party system and third parties be damned! ;) Ok, to be serious, I think that it is still important to note that McCain is the Republican candidate, in some way. alexandra (talk) 17:08, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

True. I would have found some way to mention him, but I'm too lazy for that. And I discovered that there is no article for Bob Barr (which I am currently working on). --Isis(talk) 17:11, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, in all fairness we should create articles on the smaller partys candidates.--Sinbad (talk) 17:21, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

User:Touchpath[change source]

Just a heads up, but Touchpath is yet another sock of Bambifan101/Iluvteletubbies (self admitted. May want to review his edits here to see if he's up to his usual tricks. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 17:43, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

I thought that he might be, based off of his interest in Disney articles, but they weren't direct copyvios from en, so I assumed that it was just someone else, or that the Disney Vandal had reformed. alexandra (talk) 17:44, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I pretty much suspected, with all the Disney-related edits. Didn't want to point fingers...the edits seemed mostly helpful. Thanks for pointing that out. --Isis(talk) 17:45, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
He also didn't do the obvious reverts to his preferred versions. Any edit to CW2 usually is enough to swing the ban hammer down on him. Then again, it might be because I semi'd it and that takes four days. alexandra (talk) 17:48, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I had also suspected this, but didn't block because the edits, while full of typos and such, were more helpful than his usual copy and pasting of enwiki articles. Shall we give him a chance? Majorly talk 17:50, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I don't think so. The articles, while somewhat helpful, are still riddled with typos and complex language. They aren't great enough to redeem a known vandal. --Isis(talk) 17:54, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Blocked him then. Majorly talk 17:57, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Jonas D. Rand[change source]

Hey. Can you please block Jonas D. Rand for 2 days. He edited WP:RFCU against his Mentoring plan - therefore madatting 2 days off (see User:Jonas D. Rand/Mentoring). Thanks -  Da Punk '95  talk  20:02, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

All right. Done. Just a note: in the future, whenever you ask me to block him for this mentoring thing, I'm going to take your word for it. I'm trusting that you, as his mentor, are responsible and will only report true incidents. All the best, --Isis(talk) 20:07, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
  • I don't believe this block was in line with policy (nor is the mentoring plan). I have raised the issue at WP:AN Regards --Matilda (talk) 23:17, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
    Responded on WP:AN. I think the mentoring plan should have been much better planned than it was, and maybe reviewed by a few other editors before being put into effect. --Isis(talk) 23:30, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you --Matilda (talk) 23:36, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

coming back to English Wikipedia?[change source]

Are you ever coming back to the English Wikipedia? Just ask for an appeal. You do great stuff for the Simple English Wikipedia. Amberbamberboo (talk) 06:36, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

FYI[change source]

[1] is that sad person Grawp (or at least someone pretending to be him). fr33kman 04:38, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

So glad to see you again![change source]

I really missed you editing here over the past few months :) Razorflame 06:09, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Welcome back. Let's hope you don't leave again. :) —§ stay (sic)! 06:11, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Economics in simple English[change source]

I understand. I'm a social studies teacher. Kansan (talk) 22:08, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Oh god...I'm so sorry. I could never have the patience for that. --Isis(talk) 22:10, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello![change source]

Hi, Isis! Thanks for helping me out in my article about Fleshy fruits. I hope you always keep your lovely wit as polished as ever! (I'm not being sarcastic. I admire your wit, indeed, perhaps the more since I don't have any...Face-smile.svg) Classical Esther 05:43, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

hahahaha, thanks. --Isis(talk) 14:16, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Long time...[change source]

Hello Isis,

has been a long time.... perhaps you even remember me... Anyway, the best of luck, and let's hope oyu become more active again. :) --Eptalon (talk) 17:12, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

haha, of course I remember you, Eptalon! You're one of the few people here now who was here when I stopped editing. It seems like everybody else left. :( --Isis(talk) 22:42, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

David Bowie[change source]

What do you mean David Bowie isn't prog-rock? (kidding) Kansan (talk) 03:48, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

I thought you were serious for a moment...scary. :O --Isis(talk) 03:49, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
If I actually believed that, I would need to burn my Dream Theater T-shirts. Kansan (talk) 03:50, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
But that would be just horribly wasteful...--Isis(talk) 03:54, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Agreed. Kansan (talk) 04:03, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

longer?[change source]

how can i make it longer? --Cp237 (talk) 18:06, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, instead of creating a new article for dress pants, you can just write about them in the article for pants. That way, we don't have an article with only one sentence. --Isis(talk) 18:14, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Flood[change source]

Can we set you a flood flag? Best, Jon@talk:~$ 20:11, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah that would be good...--Isis(talk) 20:12, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I see your a sysop, you can set and unset this at Special:UserRights/Isis. Best, Jon@talk:~$ 20:14, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

History of Kashmir[change source]

I noticed that you were the last person to edit History of Kashmir before me... you mentioned that you were beginning a massive cleanup of it. I went ahead and just removed about half the article because it was copy-pasted from a past version of an en:WP article. Kansan (talk) 16:43, 20 April 2010 (UTC) That's cool...possibly a horrible waste of time on my part, but whatever. I probably wouldn't ever finish anyway. --Isis(talk) 14:43, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Welcome back[change source]

Welcome back! Haven't seen you in awhile. Kansan (talk) 04:18, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! I edit whenever time permits. :) --Isis(talk) 04:20, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
Welcome back. Exert 04:55, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! --Isis(talk) 22:23, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Rights removal[change source]

In accordance with Wikipedia:Inactive administrators your rights have been removed. If you do become active again in the future you may go through a new RfA to receive them back. Thanks for your service. -DJSasso (talk) 15:43, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
